A Cup of Coffee and a Book (25)


Linked to Isolation Photo Project at Jeff Sinon’s here


  1. Not you being clumsy again? Tee Hee- sorry! Didn’t mean it 🙂 🙂 You’ve got me playing this game too. I was up on the roof with coffee and a book yesterday… and one thing leads to another.

  2. Oh. Never mind, it was good while it lasted. I’m still trying (and failing) to get that perfect coffee-shot.

  3. Do you want me to have a go? This one would be pick a book which would go well with a run of coffee down the table. It’s the art director in me Sue 🙂

    I’m so clumsy I dare not sit with a coffee and a book. I invariably drink my coffee at the kitchen table with the newspaper (the long reads held back for reading with the afternoon cuppa – I don’t drink tea at all). Might give it a go though, one day when feeling chipper.

  5. A change-around with the overurned cup. Good idea, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  6. Drained all that caffeine reading a serious book?
    And a nice reflection too

    • Sue

      Well, actually, I was trying to suggest a link between the empty cup and the emptiness of people not connecting with language, as that book explores….Steiner’s Language and Silence

  7. I appreciate the tie-in of the empty overturned coffee cup and book Sue!

  8. You commented that the empty cup was reflective of the book, Language and Silence, so I just thought that was clever.

  9. I do get the feeling of emptiness.

  10. I thought you meant his thoughts were empty, but I was unfamiliar with the book. Now I see from your responses what you meant.

  11. Reflections as well as light and shadow – and the lovely touch of an upturned cup. And a paradox – language and silence worth a contemplate.

  12. The play of light is delightful! Another whimsical still life – fun fun!
